Covers the first published standard for the process industry, WirelessHART, a wireless network protocol for the process industry Provides case studies throughout the book Will be of interest to a large international market, including any company with process controls operations WirelessHART: Real-Time Mesh Network for Industrial Automation presents the WirelessHART Standard in detail and wireless industrial automation in general. This book strives to facilitate the adoption of wireless technology in industrial automation, and introduces the research potential of the wireless industrial automation to the academics. This book is designed for practitioners and researchers working in the wireless process industry. Advanced-level students and researchers focusing on engineering and computer science will find this book valuable as a secondary text or reference book. "This is the first book in the area. I can anticipate a large international market for it that would include any company with process controls operations: Petrochemical, Chemical companies, Food and Beverage, Pulp and Paper, Pharmaceuticals, etc," - Dr. Jose A. Gutierrez of Emerson About WirelessHART: WirelessHART is a cutting-edge standard for the wireless process industry (such as oil, gas, pharmaceutical, chemical, pulp & paper, power plant, and companies such as ABB, Emerson Process Management, Endress+Hauser, MACTek, Pepperl+Fuchs, Siemens and more). This new standard provides a robust wireless mesh network protocol, and assists users with a quicker and smoother experience when operating their wireless technologies.
